*Sooooo Jori Lehtera, huh? He might be a Finnish drug lord. Or he might not be. No one has any idea what is happening but it’s pretty wild, so here are all the links. Figured this is a good time to do all the links. [BSH] [Philly.com] [NBC Sports Philly] [ProHockeyTalk] [MTV.fi - this is the original story, in Finnish]

*One thing we all need to accept is that Corban Knight is going to make this team out of camp and will be the new Chris VandeVelde. Hooray. [Philly.com]

*In that vein, Charlie evaluated all the bubble guys left on the roster at the moment to determine their chance of making the opening night roster. [The Athletic]

*Speaking of opening night, both Wayne Simmonds and Sean Couturier should be ready to go in Vegas. Which is great news. [Courier-Post]

*Ed Snider’s family seems to think there is a solid chance that Mr. Snider would’ve haaaaaated Gritty. [Philly.com]

*Yesterday we looked at ESPN’s ranking of NHL defensive corps, today we’ve got goaltending tandems. The Flyers fared better than I would have expected to be honest. [ESPN]

*I really love The Athletic but man do I hate that Down Goes Brown is behind a paywall now. He’s so funny, I want everyone to enjoy. Anyhoo, here’s DGB with his sleeper picks for NHL Awards next season, if you subscribe. [The Athletic]

*And finally, a brand new Flyperbole! It’s uh...really hilarious. Enjoy. [BSH]
